Plated + Served: Silver Dollar Blueberry Pancakes with Lemon Yogurt

Breakfast should make you happy. I know that’s not always possible… sometimes you have to just grab something and GO! During the week, I know it’s pretty difficult to make a “happy breakfast.” But finding the time, especially on weekends, to prepare something really delicious might be easier, and the results can be amazing. Like these Silver Dollar Pancakes. ...more

Experimenting with my own "fruit on the bottom" yogurt

This week I bought some plain Dannon yogurt for some tzatziki sauce I made to go along with some home made gyros -- a food experiment unto itself! For a first attempt at both gyros and sauce, I think it came out fairly well.   With the yogurt in the fridge, I did a label comparison between the plain yogurt and some regular flavored stuff I already had. What a difference! ...more

Homemade Yogurt in Mason Jars

My personal yogurt consumption goes up and down. I'll go for weeks eating it every day and then suddenly, I'll stop and a month will go by before I have it again. I have no good explanation for this. It's just the way things happen in my edible world. I'm currently is a very pro-yogurt phase. I've been eating more than a quart a week and started feeling guilt about consuming so many plastic containers. It was time to restart my homemade yogurt habit....more

yo-go, baby!

  I started a little project a couple of weeks ago after a visit to my local nursery. Mind you, "little" and "project" don't always go well together with me. But this really was little. It had to be. I was doing it in The Closet: growing seeds! ...more

Taking Care of You + thismom's Ice Pop Recipe

  Taking care of you. Taking care of me. I feel guilty for booking a 60 minute appointment with my RMT because Dear Husband wonders how to put our son down for his nap. Not his fault. I do all of the naps, because I like to. And DH works in the evenings. So I do all of the bed times. Every bath. Middle of the night wake ups. Every night.  Not to mention the other stuff that I seem to do most of. Like the laundry. The cooking. The cleaning. And l work a demanding job outside of the home every day.   I. Have. No....more
